Lovingly run and maintained by volunteers. The Museum is a peek back into history. The area is interesting and unusual especially because of the mines and the Museum captures the time period with narratives and photographs. The have incredible events in the mine

Had a fun, interesting day today at Century House, Snyder Estate and Widow Jane's Mine. Our historian/guide was lovely and took the time to explain the history of the cement industry in Rosendale. The mine itself is awesome! Very cool; light protrudes from the outside through various crevices and spaces, making it a beautiful place to visit.

The museum is great, and the Widow Jane Cave, a former cement mine, anchors the place. The Cave has an underground lake! Sometimes they host concerts and parties. The Halloween vibe is the spookiest!
